your AWC friends for a social evening of dinner and live theatre as the Bangkok Community Theatre presents...
Buffet starts at 6pm; Performance begins at 8pm
If you think Bangkok's nightlife is racy and raucous, this entertaining play provides a glimpse of what 17th Century London had to offer!

Written over 350 years ago, "The Country Wife" is William Wycherley's hilariously bawdy classic British Restoration comedy about polite society being not nearly so polite when examined more closely. The play, written in 1675, was among the new wave of plays that burst onto the London scene after the restoration of the monarchy after eighteen years of puritanical parliamentary rule when theatres, deemed to be little more than dens of debauchery, were closed.

The play's themes of sexual freedom, gossip, double standards and hypocrisy are as relevant today as they were in the 17th Century, but, above all, the play provides plenty of belly-laughs and guarantees to be a fun night for everyone.
